Back to Life... Back to Reality ...

Monday is always better when it's on a Tuesday, but I'm going to be off a day the entire week.
The weekend was great, I'm not going to bother you with a day by day account, but it was full of:
Swimming!Playing at the park.

Running, BBQ, shopping, and more eating.

I like to be home as little as possible during the weekends. Well I guess that holds true for the weekdays too. The kids hate being couped up in the house all day and so do I.

I got in a great long run on Saturday morning: 14 miles, avg pace 9:17, and my last 6 miles were my fastest. Yesterday was a 7 mile easy run, but it did not feel easy, it was soooooo hot!
I've done a good job of following my training plan and I do enjoy knowing what I'm going to run each day. On the strength front, I did well. I got in 3 videos. I want to start using heavier weights, right now, I use 5 lb weights, 10 lbs for some exercises. I would like to use 10 lbs for all of the exercises.

Did you all have a great weekend? What was the highlight?
I had a great weekend, I wanted to go out of town, but it didn't happen. We still managed to do a lot and have a good time. Our neighbors had a BBQ that was really fun and swimming was a blast.


  1. What a relaxing weekend! With some awesome runs thrown in as well!! Highlight of my weekend was definitely shopping trip to Park City...not the weather though. It snowed. I am not sure why I live here...haha! Have a wonderful (short!) week!

  2. What a great weekend---and how awesome is that 14 mile long run, great job!
    Highlight of my long weekend was running a 5k race with hubby!

  3. Sounds like you had a good 14 miler! Great pace!
